This is a guide book for those totally new to the art of tying flies. Until now, learning flytying from a book has not only been challenging, but often the cause of great frustration, with photographs or diagrams making even the elementary techniques difficult to grasp.
Step-by-step images help a reasonably proficient flytyer understand the stages in making a fly, but for the new beginner, there will always be a gap between each step-by-step image, which can be bewildering! Seeing the manual manoeuvres that take place in these blank spaces can make the difference between success and failure for a new beginner.For this reason, I aim to take learning flytying to a whole new level via this book. I want to make the essential techniques and skills required easier to master than ever before.
The techniques you will learn in this book are the building blocks on which all successful fishing flies, even the most complex ones, are based. Follow my recommendations for tools and materials, pay special attention to fly proportions and first watch the videos of me demonstrating the relevant techniques before you start to tie each fly. Then with a little patience and a good deal of practice, you will soon be tying beautiful flies.
